where did they go?
Hi guys. i havent used this forum for quite a while but have a mystery that needs solving. i have some 4 week old platy fry in a floating trap. i started with 20.......3 days ago down to 7 and today theres only 5!! wat on earth has happened to them, theres no dead ones. they are all healthy. i am not new to this and it has never happened before. i wonder if the fish are sucking them through the holes??hmmmmmm.....
grateful for any insight, would like not to lose the last of them.....

Are they able to swim out of the top?
|lioness501 ||09-06-2010 01:20 PM |
i wouldnt say so, there is a couple cm gap out of the water....there is definately no chance these guys would survive in the wild of my tank....i have noticed the other fish sucking around it tho.

well i think they have been escaping from the holding tank through the holes
|lioness501 ||09-06-2010 02:45 PM |
they are bigger than the holes!! thats why its so strange that they have vanished...maybe the plecs are sucking them out?

eeww..i just scooped out 30 or more of my babies i keep them in a large basin.i think you need to re home them else where
|lioness501 ||09-06-2010 04:00 PM |
too small to be rehomed and i dont have any other tanks. u keep them in a basin? what u mean? with filter and heater?

room temp is at 28 so i only change and add old tank water.left a plant in it for them to hide
